There's nothing even slightly metaphorical about the name of Beau's on the River. With a glassed-in dining room jutting out over the rapids on pillars, it's about as literally on the water as a place can get without being a boat. This sister restaurant to Beau's Grille opened only in May 2013, and while the views may be all new, the cooking has been a long time coming. Akron native and executive chef Billy Thurman started working in the restaurant business at age 14, and by age 25, he attained his first position as executive chef at The Twilight Cafe in Florida. Eventually, he moved back home to be closer to his mother and sisters, and he brought his wife, children, and 18 years of experience along with him. Chef Thurman puts that experience to work in the kitchen at Beau's on the River, where he helps craft an expansive menu of inventive fine dining. He coats ahi tuna with coconut sticky rice and pairs grilled chicken with lime cream and corn salsa. And of course, as guests dine, floor-to-ceiling windows frame the majesty of the tumbling falls and the hungry phalanx of fish fighting against the currents for fallen crumbs.

Chef Ivan Lefkowitz has been doling out his diverse repertoire of homemade dishes for more than 30 years, enticing the palates of prestigious clientele such as President Bill Clinton and members of The Temptations and the Cleveland Indians. The dexterous chef whips up breakfast platters, sandwich trays, gourmet dinners, and specialty buffets for special events that range from weddings to pig roasts. He can also furnish parties with delivery, serving, and event-planning services, along with tableware, decorations, and piñatas filled with enough travel-sized packages of dental floss for every guest. In addition to catering, Ivan and his kitchen crew simmer up hearty dishes at their own diner location. Deli-style burgers and sandwiches meet with homemade soups upon the restaurant’s tabletops and booths, and beneath the colorful umbrellas of its outdoor patio.

Beginning with nothing more than a modest storefront equipped with a set of custard machines built in 1910, Pav?s Creamery has anointed a bevy of cups and cones with sweet scoops throughout its more than 45-year history. The shop still churns out the old-timey confections with the same machines, and staffers carry on the tradition by scooping loads of flavors into brownie bowls, banana splits, and milk shakes, which travel up straws and human-size hummingbird beaks in a range of creative flavors. Its decadent creations have earned Pav's Creamery multiple awards, including Best Ice Cream 2011?2013, Akron Beacon Journal, and Best Ice Cream 2013-2014, Akron Canton Hot List.

Restaurant entrepreneur Ken Stewart traveled to Italy to gather the ingredients and recipes that he would use to build Tre Belle's illustrious menu of authentic Italian dishes. For appetizers, taste buds do tarantellas in anticipation of spicy stuffed peppers ($9.95), or the equally enticing artichoke with lemon aioli ($9.95). As aromatic as it is flavorful, the signature Tre Belle deluxe pizza ($14.99) is a circular tabletop of dough fixed with sausage, banana peppers, mushrooms, olives, mozzarella, and fresh basil––cooked over a wood fire for a distinctly delectable taste and instant pizza-based nostalgia. The Chicken Milanese ($15.95) is a sautéed and breaded bird adorned in a George Clinton style headdress of arugula, tomatoes, lemon, and a light drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. A glass of Pinot Grigio ($7.95) makes a loving companion to an order of lamb ragu ($15.95), pappardelle pasta mingled with savory sauce and cooked in lamb stock.

Quiet nagging hunger mufflers with appetizers such as barbecue-chicken potato skins ($5.75) and the super pretzel with mustard, salsa, or nacho cheese ($2), or tongue-dive into a specialty dish, such as the chicken cordon "bru" ($6.75), the buffalo-chicken wrap ($5.50), or the mega dog ($4). Brubaker's burritos wrap various fillings in the fresh-baked arms of nine-inch tortillas and come in varietals such as the Popeye ($5.50), a hulkifying combination of spinach-artichoke dip, tomatoes, onions, shredded cheddar, and ranch dressing. Brubaker's also offers a wide-ranging beer selection to indulge the fermented fantasies of Prohibition-era taste buds.
